7:03 am
felony convictions in arkansas and washington state. but he was facing eight more felony charges, including assault on an officer and child rape. but last week, he was freed on $15,000 bond. the four lakewood police officers were all veterans of the small department. they range in age from 37 to 42. between them, they leave behind nine children. harry? >> john blackstone? washington this morning. thanks. joining us now is detective ed sloier, spokes person for the pierce county sheriff's office. good morning. >> good morning. >> give me the latest information you can share with us this morning on the situation with this suspect maurice clemmons. >> well, we are calling him a suspect now. he's no longer a person of interest. we also have determined that he was shot during the incident when he killed the four police officers, one of them did fire off some rounds. we believe our suspect has been shot and he does have a wound, possibly a severe wound.
7:04 am
he did not go get medical treatment through our investigation, it's led us to another residence in the city of seattle where a tactical operation is under way by the seattle police department now. hopefully to get him put in to custody without anybody else getting hurt. >> do you have a sense whether or not he is still alive? >> we don't know if he's still alive. if he isn't, it's going to be because he succumbed it to the wound that he received yesterday when he was in the struggle with the police officer that managed to get a hot h. shot fired off at him before he was killed. >> detective, thank you very much for your time this morning. >> thank you. maggie? >> now to the latest on tiger woods. the world's number one golfer is maintaining his silence after issuing and online statement on sunday and canceling three police enter trues about the late night accident that he was involved in. randall pinkston is in wind mere, florida with the latest this morning. >> reporter: good morning. in a story driven by rumor, the latest has 20 do with a report
7:05 am
that authorities may be looking in to obtaining a search warrant to go into tiger woods' home to see if indeed the injuries that he have received were sustained in a car accident. this morning the florida highway patrol says cbs news that they have made no statement to any news organization concerning a search warrant. meanwhile, woods remains in his home behind this gated community saying on his website that he assumes responsibility for the accident, adding, i'm human. i'm not perfect. it was the car crash heard round the world because the sole occupant was the world's most famous gfler, 33-year-old tiger woods. after two days of silence, woods spoke out for the first time on his website. he called the accident a private matter, denunsing what he called the many false, unfounded and malicious rumorses that are currently circumstance lail lating about my family and me. one of those rumor, that woods and his wife had argued before he left home at 2:30 friday morning and crashed into a thab's tree in a wealthy gated
7:06 am
community near orlando. >> i need an ambulance. i have someone down in front of my house. >> reporter: police say there was no alcohol involved in the accident. these tmz photos were taken shortly after woods' wife, police say, broke the suv windows with a golf club and pulled woods out of the driver's seat. in his statement, woods praised his wife saying she was the first person to help me. any other assertion is absolutely false. woods was apparently reacting to unconfirmed reports that his wife was angry because of a story in the "national enquirer" that woods was dating new york party girl rachel ucatel. she deny it is but had little to say when cbs cameras caught up with her. the "national enquirer's" managing editor says his paper stands by their report that she and woods had an affair and was seen in the same hotel in melbourne, australia, where woods attended a golf tournament. >> this is an investigation that took us several weeks. obviously she's caught up in a scandal now of global proportion
7:07 am
and is trying to pack pedal on her story. >> reporter: cbs news obtained these exclusive pictures of investigators entering woods' home to question him about the accident. but for the third day, woods and his wife refused to talk. his attorney provided woods' driver's license, registration and proof of sthurps, which is all that is required under florida law. left unanswered, why woods ran over a fire hydrant and into a tree? what happened that september him out of his house at 2:30 in the morning? later this week, tiger woods is scheduled to host the chef ron world tournament, that's a golf tournament that benefits his charitable foundations, it is held in california. so far there's no word on whether woods will play in the tournament or if, indeed, he will even appear for a news conference scheduled for tomorrow. maggie? >> rantal pink son in wind mere, florida. thank you so much. joining us now from wlaenks is lisa bloom. lisa, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with the latest. p this report from tmz this morning, that investigators may
7:08 am
go after the medical records from the hospital that treated tiger after the accident to see if his injuries were consistent with domestic violence, to sfee they're consistent with his wife attacking him. in order on obtain a warrant for those records, don't they need to show probable cause that a crime was committed? >> yes, they do. but that's a very low legal standard. they just have to have some reasonableable suspicion, some reason to believe that there was a domestic violence incident. and they have an obligation to pursue an investigation of domestic violence, but having said that, if there's no complaining witness, if tiger woods is standing by his wife as he appears to be, i don't see a domestic violence investigation going very far. >> so then how do we explain why police have been so persist tent in trying to talk to him when under florida law he's not required to make a statement? >>ent in trying to talk to him when under florida law he's not required to make a statement? >>ent in trying to talk to him when under florida law he's not required to make a statement? >> he is required to notify the police immediately after an accident causing $500 or more in damage. it was $5,000 in damage to his suv we understand. he was excused for that when he
7:09 am
was incapacitated and in the.once he improved, he was required to make a report. that took some time. he's done that through his attorneys. he's not required to give a further statement. but he has made three appointments with the police and postponed or canceled all three of those appointments, probably because his attorney don't want him to speak any further. no decent criminal defense attorney would wapts their client to talk. also, if he is so -- >> but why if he has nothing to hide? i don't get that. if he has mog to hide, why wouldn't they want him to tell the police what happened? >> well, no criminal defense attorney wants their client to talk whether they're innocent or guilty. it just gives the police more information. anything you say can and will be used against you. that's the theory here. that's the theory in every case. also, if he has scratches or bruises, they want time for those to heal so he doesn't have to answer questions about them if indeed they did a rise from domestic violence. >> and and i had like to ask you about the woman at the center of infidelity allegations surrounding tiger woods. rachel has denied that they were involved.
7:10 am
she has hired gloria allred, who we i should say is your mother. why would she feel the need to retain an attorney? >> gone the answer to that. i know she has denied having an affair with tiger woods. i would assume that there's no reason that my mom would get involved if that's the entire story, simply denying any involvement. there has to be more to this story, so stay tuned. i think more will be coming out on that very shortly. >> we sure will stay tuned. lisa bloom, thank you very much. >> thank you. so many twists and attorney turn trs what started as a simple car accident. >> seemed like. we'll talk about some of the financial -- potential financial repercussions for tiger woods, but right now, russ mitchell is in at the news desk. good morning. the recession may be easing in this country, but dubai's debt troubles show the world economic crisis is not over yet. today we see how wall street reacts. kelly wallace is at the new york stock exchange with the latest.
7:11 am
>> reporter: european stocks were down today, a sign of continued anxiety following news a major dubai company couldn't repay $60 billion in debt. that will be in the mix here today, but so will some positive news. americans spent $41 billion this holiday weekend. that's up slightly over last year. the volume of shoppers opening up their wallets for black friday bargains exceeded expect stations. on average, each shopper spent nearly 8% less versus a year ago. >> it will definitely be a higher profit season than what we saw in holiday 2008. >> reporter: there's also good news today for the 14% of american homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments or in had foreclosure. the obama administration is expected to noins new policies that whether pressure mortgage
7:12 am
companies to do more to modify troubled loans. >> anything that can be done by the obama administration to ease oral lay concerns and fears about further mortgage defaults i think will be received very positively by the market. >> reporter: and part of the program involves naming lenders who don't do must have to help in the hopes of shaming them into doing more. russ? >> kelly wallace, thank you very much. after months of deliberation, president obama is ready to reveal his plan for the war in afghanistan. in a speech tomorrow night, he is expected to announce he's sending in 35,000 more u.s. troops and he'll outline an exit strategy for american forces. iran's 3rd is defending the decision to defy the u.n. over it nuke rear program. sheila macvicar has the latest from london. >> reporter: criticized for behaving more like apunruely teenager than a world power,
7:13 am
ahmadinejad said they construct ten enrichment plants. days after the watch dog demanded a freeze on all uranium enrichment activity, iran announced its intention to dramatically expand its program. >> the organization has two months to start construction of five of them. >> reporter: a decision the head of the country's nuclear program said today was taken in direct response to the u.n.'s rebuke. the white house called the plan another violation of iran's obligationses warning time is running out for iran to address growing concerns about its nuclear program. but could this be more bluff than threat? >> the idea that they can build ten more of these large enrichment plants just isn't believable. >> reporter: any new plants could take years to build, but amid a dead lock with negotiations saying they had reached a dead he said, iran is likely to face new deadliness and further sanctions. russ? >> sheila macvicar in london. thank you very much. the price of the 12 days of christmas items have risen
7:14 am
slightly this year. it would cost more than $87,000 for all the gifts in the song beginning with the partridge in a pear tree. that's up $794 from last year. mostly because of the higher price of those five golden rings. you know what else had get you this year? the five ladies dancing. $5400 a performance. >> with unemployment as high as it is, it would be easier to get some of the dancers. the one thing that con founds me is the geese a laying. >> or the mai ds a milking. >> can't you go to costco? >> and where do you get good lords a leaping? >> i don't think sam's club has those. >> i'm hoping that we can get a good forecast this morning. lonnie quinn is in for dave price. >> we're certainly paying must have for it. >> let's talk about the weather because here's how we see it. when you look at the whole cup, it's the last day in november. it's pretty mild with the exception up around the great

"early show" exclusive. consumer report which is tests everything from cars to household products has tested chicken from grocery stores across the country and found that the majority of all the chicken for sale, 2/3 of all chicken carries some kind of food-born disease. >> a cautionary tale to be sure. first, though, tiger woods is the highest paid athlete of all time. but has he put his endorsements on the line by issuing only a written statement about his car crash? bianca solorzano is here with the rest of that story. >> well, sponsors have had a long love affair with tiger woods, but that may have come to a crashing halt last friday. >> reporter: so far the only statement released from tiger woods on friday's car crash has been on his website. but his refusal to speak openly has only fueled further speculation about what really happened. many experts say tiger should take a cue from other celebs who
7:32 am
have come clean to save that came priors such as david ladier man. >> i have had sex with women who work for me on this show. >> reporter: and kobe bryant. >> i'm so sorry. >> in this case silence is a big mistake. sponsors are probably nervous. at the very least, they can't be happy with all this speculation. >> reporter: and there is much at stake for his career. information estimates that the combined endorsement trs brands such as nike and his golf course design business pushed woods across the $1 billion mark in career earnings, making him the first athlete ever to do so. but now with his tipped silence and as the rumors swirl, the question is whether one small fender-bender will put the first real dent in a business empire known as tirg inc. now, remember, woods is only 33 years old. he is easily projected to have at least another 15 years of competitive golf in him. and then decades of designing
7:33 am
golf courses. so there is a lot of earning potential at play right now. >> thank you so much. joining us now is public relations specialist ken sunshine. good morning. you've represented many very, very important clients over the years. if tiger woods were to call you today, what advice would you give him? >> you should have called me a couple of days ago. that would be the first communication. no, i think, you know, he is -- it's the perfect storm. his people mishandled it. >> you really feel that way? >> yeah. mr. perfect is never mr. perfect. and they're not used to this kind of thing and usually they've clamped up on everything with tiger forever. and they don't make him accessible, they don't have him talk. anybody they sue all the time anybody that writes anything untrue. >> is that true? >> they've had many lawsuits against tab lieds. often, and i think it's great,
7:34 am
by the way, i'm usually the one that's considered overprotective of my clients. don't let the media, if you consider the tabloid media -- >> so they've handled him perfectly until this moment. >> they handled him perfectly unless something like this had would happen. and putting that clamp around, mr. perfect is never mr. perfect. i think the worst thing they did -- two bad things. one is they stone walled the cops. it looks like they're protecting something. talk to the cops. legally they hey not have to. talk to the cops. secondly, that bizarre statement -- >> the other part of that, though, is if you talk to the cops, that just adds to who might leak what, who might say with a to whom. it creates a bigger trail. >> rue. but if you don't talk to the cops the way he did, that made the media go away and then they release three days too late a bizarre statement kind of admitting, i think, that he did something, something bad happened, but being very vague.
7:35 am
is there a less media interest because of that statement? the whole goal in dealing with these thingses is to try to make it go away. david letterman didn't make them go away, but he sure diffused it and he did it right away. you into to the act right away in these kind of things. they stone walled it. and i think mishandled it. >> he's the first billion dollar athlete, if you are an advertiser and you may have concerns from whatever has transpired over the last couple of days, is tiger woods any less marketable than he was a half a week ago ? >> possibly. some of these straight arrow advertisers may be nervous at the very least, but if they handle it right, it could help him. humanizing somebody is not the worst thing. nobody's perfect. but they did a bad job for 722 hours in not dealing with it and let's see what happens now. i think what's happening is the lawyers are telling him not to talk and the agents. and they don't know anything about this. they also don't know anything about the digital age of the

7:44 am
specific rules on salmonella, but no federal standards for camp low plaquer currently exist and the presence of bacteria does not mean you will automatically get sick. >> so let's talk about ways to prevent getting sick. when we go to the store, what should we look for? >> buy your meat last and grab some bags from the produce department and peck up your chicken in the baggy and then future it maybe at the bottom underneath the cart when you're shopping. that wait liquid doesn't spill and you don't spully have to touch anything. and keep it in your baggy when you bring it home and put it in the frimg. >> and when take you it home and you're hamming it? >> have a cooking board that's specifically designated for raw meat. you only use it for raw meat. and consumer reports says don't rinse your chicken in the kitchen sink. most of us do. >> where else would you rinse it? >> they say take a pot of water if you immediate to and dip the chicken, but if urinesing it in the sink, they say there's a chance that it can splash and actually spread the juices. >> and what about when you're

8:15 am
happened to us over the weekend. i got one of those bank things where it said there's been too much activity. and this is from a year ago that stuff was running around. i got one over the weekend. >> so that's one thing you have to be careful about. but also when you are about to buy something, look up at the top before the e-mail address and make sure it says https. s for security. and also bottom right corner, should you see a little padlock sometimes. that will always let you know it's a secure site. by and large, great to shop online. usually pretty safe. i would probably not recommend using a wireless network if you're sitting in the aerpt or at a coffee shop. but if you're 00 on a secure site, hey, why not. >> there you go. let us go on to another question. this had one hone has been e-ma us. with many big sales being advertised already, am i really going to see much better buys as the holiday shopping season moves forward? good question.
8:16 am
or shy just take advantage of sales being offered right now? >> everybody is saying shop now because inventory is low. so if you see something, you like it, the price is right, buy it. otherwise it may not be there down the road. some toys are already selling out. some other products are selling out. so if you see it now, you like it, it's a good idea to buy it. >> and you'll notice when you go in the stores, there are fewer things offered at certain stores. >> and the row r. etailers know they'll keep their inventory low. >> we start off -- we have a question about advertisements on your cell phone. >> hi, i'm janet from california. i have a question about advertising on cell phones. how can we go about stopping that? >> that's really kind of annoying, isn't it? so first thing you should do, if you get an advertise opt your cell phone and you don't want it, contact your carrier, head them know the day, the time, who it came from.
8:17 am
but also try to avoid things like buying ring tones or buying jokes of the day if you're not buying them from trusted sites. once you buy stuff like that, your number can get out there and spread around. >> and it will grow. all right. susan, thank you very much. if you would like to send susan or any of our early show family a question, all you need to do is go to our website, early show dath up next, victoria secret models, maggie and runway. when we come back. l-

did you see maggie rodriguez on the cat walk? pretty good. harry, inside to you. the couple who crashed the white house party has reportedly been interviewed by the secret service and could face criminal charms, but the big question remain, how could this have happened some joining us from jack sonville, florida is former secret service deputy director bruce bohn. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i want to go back and i want
8:33 am
you to imagine you're in the position of the secret service the night of this massive state dinner. now, it's not just secret service there. are there not federal police officers, washington, d.c. police officers around there, too? >> yes, there are. they're on the outer perimeter outside the white house complex and closer in, it there are uniformed division officers, the secret service and then the inner perimeter are the secret service special agents. >> and under normal circumstances for an event like this is there not also supposed to be somebody from the social office of the white house? >> yes, there is. >> and in this case, there apparently was not. so if people come in and present themselves and say we're supposed to get inside, what do you think went wrong? >> i think there was an initial
8:34 am
breakdown at a check-point manned by a secret service uniform division officer's secret service recognized the short coming and has admitted default. and most importantly they have sought to rectify this immediately.and most importantl sought to rectify this immediately. >> from the perspective of the times we live in and the almost omnipresent threat to the white house, this kind of a breach, is it explainable and is it excusable? >> it's not excusable, but we need to take a look at what happens after the initial checkpoint. there are many layers of security within the white house complex and the important thing to remember is that the president or any of our other protectives were never in any danger by virtue of those other layers of security. >> i think about times when i go visit the white house from that
8:35 am
main gate out front, had they always want your social security number days and days in advance. there's somebody on the inside, you put your license through. there's a very elaborate process for people like me to get in and out. it is a little less so in a social event, is it not, or is it really the same? >> in a social event, the manam checks are done before happened, identifying features are given by the people to attend and people are vetted. however, again, the protectives were never in any danger during this event. >> do you suspect somebody will end up getting fired as a result of this? >> i would hope not. i know director sullivan has admitted the mistake, has worked feverishly to rectify that mistake, and we have to keep in mind that the secret service has vetted over $7 million in the
8:36 am
recent past during the campaign and has acted almost flawlessly. >> bruce, we thank you very much for your expertise this morning. tracking how much energy your family uses could soon be just a double which i can away. here with an exclusive look at a very cool new computer program is natali del conte, she is senior editor at cnet. >> well, green is in and with energy prices on the rise, technology comes are trying to help consumers conserve. this it new program is called microsoft home. it works with your power company to track and monitor energy use. and also give you tips on how to safe. so we asked a family in sacramento, california to test it out. >> the economy just really hit everybody. and we needed to find a way to try to safe money. >> reporter: the goddard family spends loads doing laundry. their power company recently suggested changing the time of day they do the wash to shrink their bills.
8:37 am
>> so this is me after 10:00 at night doing my laundry. so i stayed up late and i get up early so i can dry it. >> reporter: they also hope to save money by replacing their light bulbs with compact flur recent sebtss. but with unpre-iktable energy price, they cooperate tell if their changes were saving either money or energy. >> we have to pay attention here. >> reporter: the early show asked the goddards to try a new program called microsoft home to find out. >> what type of energy is it your water heater use? we use natural gas. >> reporter: microsoft hohm's online survey evaluates every detail of a home's energy use. >> we're 16% complete. >> that's it? >> reporter: that survey about the appliances they own suggested ways chee save money. >> this is our refridge trat tore in our garage. the problem is that koort to our survey, it is something that we need to really seriously look at to get rid of. >> reporter: the hohm software also monitors the goddard's use
8:38 am
of gas and electricity over the internet. the family learned by combining laundry load, they could reduce resource use and save money. >> me and my dad combine our laundry now. >> reporter: another change which could add to the estimated $240 they saved last year. >> we'd be spending more money, that's true. >> reporter: microsoft and google both have programs like this in development. if your power company is not participating, you can input your family's energy data manually, but i warn you, it's a long process, so set aside an entire afternoon. >> and you'll use a lot of computer power that day i guess. >> i guess so. and then you'll know how much commuter power you used. >> so how do you know if your power company is participating or not? >> you come go to the website, it's or google might be participating, as well. swlsh power meter. and if your company is not, again, you can do it yourself or call your power company and say i like this idea, can we do
8:39 am
something like that about sglp did you find any other tips to cop serving pow sner. >> the good thing about this is that you can social network with other people who are using this so you can share tips. so tips such as use one of those power savers so that you plug all your gadgets in and then when you leave at the end of the day, flip that off. also make sure that you've weather-safed your home so they're not working koefr time. and if you find more tip, you can share them with your friends. >> it's collaborative, interactive. >> it is. a lot like dieting. the more you though about your habits, the more likely you'll make better choices. >> thank you. to help you make the best choice, we'll put all this on the web. early the cbs news magazine 6 on minutes oig and vanity fair magazine are out with a brand new poll taking the pulse of america on all sorts of interesting matters. and here with the results are
8:40 am
cali and michael. good morning. so we have a bunch of interesting questions that you polled to get answers to. maggie is back on the coach with us now. i want to start with it this very first one, which i think is terrific. which is who would be the next face to put on mt. rushmore? >> we gave americans seven options for the hypothetical fifth slot including our current president, barack obama, as well as fdr, jfk, ronald reagan. so what do you think? >> do you want to guess first? >> i think if you know anything about history, you'd have to do fdr because he serveded four term. but i think given our current population, most people probably said kennedy. >> i've got to believe it's got to be between kennedy and fdr. >> you're right, it is jfk. people want to further that camelot feeling.
8:41 am
